Jacob steals Esau’s blessing: Genesis 27


The bible says that Peace comes through forgiveness and repentance (saying sorry).

Read the story about Jacob and Esau and see how they were not at peace with each other. After Jacob had stolen Esau’s birth right, he ran away and the brothers lived apart for many years.



How could he be at peace with his brother, when he had done so many wrong things? Would they be able to live peacefully? When they met, Jacob tried to give Esau gifts, but Esau just forgave him. This is a beautiful example of peace between two brothers after years of being angry and apart!



Dear God,

Thank you that there are examples in the bible where we can see peace between family and friends. Help us to be at peace with our friends and family.
